2010 – It’s Never Too Late For You Redux

  • Colonel Sanders began his Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in his sixties
  • Etiquette maven Emily Post didn’t write her first etiquette book until she was in her 50s
  • Painter Grandma Moses didn’t pick up a paint brush until her seventies, and wasn’t discovered until her 80s.
  • Ian Fleming (James Bond) didn’t write his first novel until he was 45.
  • R. Buckminster Fuller, who invented the geodesic dome, wasn’t recognized until his 50s.
  • Julia Child (French cookbook author) was in her 50s before she began her TV career.
  • In his mid-50s Taikichiro Mori founded the business that made him, for a year or two, the richest man in the world.
  • In professional sports, an athlete’s career usually ends in the mid-to-late 30s, so a player who breaks through in his late 20s/early 30s would be considered a late bloomer.  Kurt Warner entered the NFL at age 28, and went on to become a two-time MVP and Super Bowl champion
  • Ronald Reagan, a former actor, union leader and corporate spokesman, was first elected to public office at 55 when he became Governor of California and remains the oldest man to have served as U.S. President.
  • Laura Ingalls Wilder became a columnist in her forties, but did not publish her first novel in the Little House series of children’s books until her sixties
  • Richard Farnsworth (of Anne of Green Gables fame) became an actor after 40 years as a stunt man {although he had had a few small un-credited roles when younger}.

What do these people have in common? They walked in their dreams – some very late in life, others a bit earlier (30’s 40’s). What is my point? It is NEVER too late to go after your dreams.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (KJV)

No matter which translation you read, you will find that God has a great plan for your life.


(HCSB)  “For I know the plans I have for you”–this is the LORD’s declaration–“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

(MSG)  I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

(CEV)  I will bless you with a future filled with hope–a future of success, not of suffering.

(NIRF)  I know the plans I have for you,” announces the Lord. “I want you to enjoy success. I do not plan to harm you. I will give you hope for the years to come.


God’s plan is for our well being and peace, a future of success, not evil, not disaster, not suffering!!  He wants us to enjoy success in our life here on earth!

When you ask, God will bring you to the right pathway to this perfect plan for your life.  In this pathway there is no death – no death of relationships, no death of dreams, no death of visions, no death of finances, and no death of health.

Today’s point is to realize that it is NEVER too late to get on the right pathway that leads to the perfect place God has for you.  It is NEVER too late to live in the perfect story for your life.

I shared some people who achieved success late in life simply to show you that there is NO age barrier to walking in the plan God has for your life.

The important thing is to stay hooked up to Him and He will get you there.

  1. Awesome! It is never to late. I would rather keep believing knowing that I will walk in Gods plan then stop believing. Stop believing will mean I miss it. Christmas is coming anyway I might as well be believing in something.
